The April issue of Hakusensha's LaLa magazine is announcing on Thursday that an anime film based on Yuki Midorikawa's Hotarubi no Mori e supernatural romance manga has been green-lit for this year. Director Takahiro Omori and the anime studio Brains Base are working on this project; they have also been working on another anime adaptation of a Midorikawa manga, Natsume Yūjin-Chō (Natsume's Book of Friends).

The story of Hotarubi no Mori e centers around Hotaru, a little girl who gets lost in an enchanted forest where apparitions reside. A young boy, Gin, appears before Hotaru, but she cannot touch him for fear of making him disappear.

Both anime versions of Hotarubi no Mori e and Natsume Yūjin-Chō will be on display at the Anime Contents Expo next month in Chiba, Japan.

I hope this film does well. I really do like that story, but I don't think it could be made into a full-length movie.

I'm interested, despite myself. It has a chance to be really good.

Very much looking forward to it. Midorikawa's pieces are always elegant, simple, and highly original. Should make for a great adaptation.

Quote from Hotarubi no Mori e Slated to Open on September 17
The official website for the anime film adaptation of Yuki Midorikawa's (Natsume Yūjin-Chō) Hotarubi no Mori e supernatural romance manga announced on June 4 that the film will open in Japan on September 17 in two theaters: Theater Umeda in Osaka and Ikebukuro's Cine Libre in Tokyo.

Special pre-order tickets will go on sale at the theaters starting June 18. Fans who buy these tickets will get a free poster.

The website also announced that Sizzle Ohtaka will sing the theme song for the film, titled "Natsu o Miteita" (Was Watching Summer). The film's soundtrack will be released on August 24.

The story of Hotarubi no Mori e centers around Hotaru, a little girl who gets lost in an enchanted forest where apparitions reside. A young boy, Gin, appears before Hotaru, but she cannot touch him for fear of making him disappear. Anime studio Brains Base are animating the film, with director Takahiro Omori and music by Makoto Yoshimori. The film stars Ayane Sakura (Dream Eater Merry) as Hotaru and Kouki Uchiyama (Infinite Stratos, C, Soul Eater) as Gin.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm completely spazzing out here! One of my most beloved oneshots as an anime film? I can hardly wait! I hope they make it as beautiful as the manga was~♥

*Edit*

OMG, I just saw the movie and T______T

The only word I can use to describe it with is beautiful. Absolutely goddamn beautiful.

This is just wishful thinking, but it would be amazing if Natsume of Natsume Yuujinchou were to meet an adult Hotaru within the series. *___*

*eyes pop out*

Wow, that's great news

Though it is very short, I'm sure they can make it into a really beautiful full-length movie if they try

I'm looking forward to this
